We try to run at least a couple of Club dive trips annually to give our members the chance to explore new dive sites and develop their skills away from the Rezza.
All trips are run at cost and we always try to keep these reasonable. Members will need to pay for travel, accommodation, food and any diving-related expenses such as boat hire and air fills.
Sometimes these trips are for a long weekend, other times a week away. We also run regular day trips to relatively local dive sites such as Chepstow National Diving and Activity Centre (NDAC), Cromhall Quarry, Stoney Cove and Dosthill.
In the last few years we have run two week-long trips to Northumberland (diving around the Farne Islands), weekend trips to Plymouth and Criccieth, and even organised a member’s diving stag-do to Milford Haven! Previously we have also had many fun-filled Club trips to the Red Sea, Egypt.
We have organised trips to Scapa Flow and Lundy for 2018, so it looks like another good year’s diving is on the cards. Despite this there is already talk in the Clubhouse of potential trips to Malta, Italy and Iceland in the near future, so stay tuned for more on that!
The map below shows places we’ve been (orange and blue markers) and where we’d really like to go (purple markers)!
We always try to open up the trips to as many divers as possible, however due to the nature of some dive sites that we visit, we do unfortunately have to restrict some trips to divers of certain grades and above.
Trips away are also usually open to spouses/partners/children/dogs of divers, so no one is left out! Non-divers always arrange a suitably entertaining schedule to occupy themselves while the divers are out at sea.
